The site Ungeheuer is one of the most distinctive and well-known vineyards of the palatinate. There powerful and long-lasting wines with a spicy minerality are produced. When Reich Chancellor Prince Otto von Bismarck visited Deidesheim at the end of the 1880s as a guest of the Vice President of the Reichstag, the owner of the winery Franz Armand Buhl, he said: „This Ungeheuer tastes monstrous to me. Von Buhl is the sole owner of the original plot Ungeheuer, which served as eponyms for the VDP.Große Lage. The lively acidity is harmoniously integrated by light earthy notes and discreet aromas of the wood barrels.
Complex, this is the best description of the soil structure in the much vaunted site in the Mittelhaardt: typical sandstone weathering soils with more dense clay and sand layers, partially offset with amounts of limestone. Basalt rock provides the vines with the necessary heat and mineral character. A massive limestone plate at a depth of approx. 2 m provides a
very effi cient water supply. The sum of all factors is the reason for the power and length of the wines from the Ungeheuer.
